King Kong

mild violence, threat

Violence
People are grabbed by giant monsters and are then placed in their mouths, thrown into ravines, or squashed under foot. There is no sight of blood or injury detail involving human characters. There are also sequences in which giant monsters fight each other; in one scene a dinosaur's jaws are cracked open and some thick blood oozes from its mouth.
Threat and horror
There are extended scenes of threat as characters confront angry locals and various large monsters. Characters are chased through a jungle and a city and there are scenes of panic as people run away, terrified, from the escaped King Kong.
Other issues include some very mild bad language with uses of 'darned'. There are several scenes in which characters smoke cigarettes.
